that component of intravesical pressure created by the tension (active and passive) exerted by the bladder wall; the transmural pressure across the bladder wall estimated by subtracting abdominal pressure from intravesical pressure.

No significant change was observed in the first urinary sensation, bladder capacity, bladder compliance or maximum detrusor pressure during the follow-up period.
Because of different anatomical structures, women suffer more easily from urinary tract infection and high detrusor pressure, and the morbidity of UUTD in women may be higher than in men (3).
(43) They noted similar improvement in MCC and lowered maximal detrusor pressure, with about 33% reduction of de novo need for IC.
Progressive MS exhibited significant increase in the bladder volume at the first desire to voiding, the detrusor pressure at maximum flow rate (PdetQmax), and bladder compliance after the treatment (P < 0.05).
The filling stopped, when the patient had voiding sensation, at which the infused volume was measured as the maximum vesical volume (MVV), and the bladder pressure at the same point was recorded as maximum detrusor pressure (MDP).
It has been shown to reduce number of incontinence episodes, as well as detrusor pressure and number of detrusor contractions with filling on urodynamics in both adults and children with NDO [1, 2].
Additionally, urodynamic work-up included: in cystometry: detrusor pressure at overactivity (Pdet overact), intravesical pressure at maximum cystometric capacity (Pves CC), and bladder wall compliance (Comp).
The efficacy of botulinum toxin type A injections in children with neurogenic bladders due to spina bifida was described in 2002; 85-300 U of botulinum toxin type A was injected into the detrusor muscle, causing an increase in average maximum bladder capacity and detrusor compliance, and a decrease in the mean maximal detrusor pressure. Continence was restored in all 17 children investigated.
The variables addressed include mean cystometric capacity (MCC) and maximal detrusor pressure (MDP).
[Q.sub.max], detrusor pressure at opening ([P.sub.detOpen]), detrusor pressure at maximum flow ([P.sub.det][Q.sub.max]), and PVR were recorded.
The bladder capacity, abdominal pressure, bladder pressure, detrusor pressure, electromyographic activity (EMG) of the pelvic base muscles, compliance, type of the urinary flow, speed of the urinary flow (Qmax) and residual urine volume were recorded.
